"But according to His promise we are looking for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells."

- 2 Peter 3:13

Recently, the Weather Channel made a special presentation entitled “Save the Planet.” It presented the politically correct view that manmade climate change will destroy the planet, with some claiming that it will happen within a few years. As believers, we know how the world will end. First, the Lord will take us home to heaven, and "thus we will always be with the Lord." He will keep us "from the hour of testing, that hour which is about to come upon the whole world." Next, He will pour out judgment upon this earth, "such as has not occurred since the beginning of the world." Even in His unparalleled judgment, there will be mercy and grace as many sinners will repent, and Israel will be redeemed. Then He will set up His kingdom on earth, remove the curse, and the planet will be much like it was in the beginning. Then "the earth and its works will be burned up," and He will create "new heavens and a new earth." And finally, in eternity, we shall with Him, "reign forever and ever." For man to think he can save the planet is just like man thinking he can save himself. It cannot be done! Yes, it is true, He has the whole world in His hands. Be encouraged!
